The info that syncs from the Fitbit includes all moderate and vigorous activity. I find that it counts things like an easy walk around the neighborhood with my kids, which doesn't elevate my heart rate and isn't something I would consider to be "exercise". The only way to avoid that is to manually enter your own workouts based on the activities you're doing.

Hope that helps,

Are you updating your fitness goals regularly? If you burn more calories than SP originally calculates for you, it will set your nutrition goals too low. Sorry I can't be more help

How do i get my numbers to be more realistic?. My fitbit said I burned 750 cal yesterday, and entered that as a fitness entry. ( i walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes plus my daily steps for about 8,000 steps). Then my bmr said i burn 2,500. together, they are too high and throw my daily calorie differential off. How do I make them more realistic?
